St Helens Together 01744 676767 is a single point of contact for people needing help or wanting to volunteer.
If you’re isolated by coronavirus and need help, please call 01744 676767 to find out what support is available.
There are volunteers around St Helens who can do things like:
We have operated a community hub, delivering food parcels each week to our most vulnerable residents.
St Helens Borough Council is part of a Defra programme which enables us to provide access to delivery slots at Iceland or Tesco.
This programme is for those who have not been able to access food and other essential supplies themselves, due to circumstances related to COVID-19.
You can find out more about the service, and if you qualify, by contacting us on 01744 676767 and selecting option 1 when prompted to do so.
If you qualify for this priority service, our staff will, with your agreement, enter your details into the Defra programme portal.
Depending on which option you choose, you will either be provided with a code or receive an email from the supermarket with a reference number and instructions.
Once we have registered you with the programme, you will be able to order your groceries online yourself.
Please note: this programme has limited capacity and registration requires you to specify how long you think you need this priority access for.
If you would like to volunteer to help people who are isolated or affected by coronavirus, please register your details on the volunteer portal or call 01744 676767.
You can help by doing things like:
When registering, you can also put yourself forward as a 'street champion'. You can download a postcard and introduce yourself to your neighbours, offering support.
Street champions might also be contacted with details of someone in need who has been in touch with them. You'll be supported by our Contact Cares team, who can help if someone has concerns about a neighbour or does not know where to direct them.
